Atlantic County health officials confirmed 37 new cases of Covid-19 among 14 males, ages 22-80 and 23 females, ages 2-96 as well as the deaths of an 81-year-old Buena Borough man and a 90-year-old Hammonton woman, both of whom had pre-existing conditions that put them at higher risk for complications.
Today’s positives were identified as follows: 10 in Pleasantville, eight in Galloway, four in Atlantic City and three each in Absecon and Egg Harbor Township. Northfield and Hammonton each had two new cases while Brigantine, Buena Borough, Hamilton Township, Margate and Somers Point each had one.
Atlantic County has confirmed 2,097 residents who have tested positive for Covid-19 and 149 deaths as well as 712 residents who have been cleared as recovered.
Atlantic County will continue to provide COVID-19 testing, however, the testing location has been moved to Northfield, behind the county’s Public Works facility at Route 9 and Dolphin Avenue. The new location provides greater protection from the elements in the event of inclement weather.
This week’s testing will take place on Wednesday, May 27 and Thursday, May 28, 10 AM – 1 PM, for symptomatic county residents with a doctor’s prescription, proof of residency and appointment confirmation.
Appointments can be made on the county web site at www.aclink.org. Those who are unable to keep their appointments are asked to cancel so others may have an opportunity to be tested.
